We got our first NO response today and I’m a little bit sad. I know Fiance has a much bigger and closer family than I but it still hurts that thus far, all the YESes are from his side and my side is the first NO. It was my stepbrother and his wife who I’m not that close to but it still makes me sad. I think it confirms my prediction that I’m going to have a LOT less people on my side than he will on his. I know it’s not all about numbers, but my father died, so he won’t be there, and one (maybe both) of my grandmothers will not be there. I guess I’m just feeling sorry for myself and wanted to vent.

I’m so sorry.
I just mailed our invites out today and am not looking forward to the “no’s” (and I know there will be several), but try not to take it personally.

*HUGS* I’ve started thinking about the NO’s that we’re going to get. I would try and not let it get you too down for too long and just think about those that will come… even if they aren’t family and they’re more friends.. these are the ones that care/love/and want to celebrate with you!
Keep them in the forefront and the rest in the back 😉

Big hugs. I won’t lie, it sucks when your family RSVP “No”. Pretty much none of my extended family are coming (ok, because they live overseas, but still) and ALL of FH’s extended family are coming. It’s fine. Deep breath and try not to take it personally (again, I know it’s hard) and very soon you won’t even think about it.

Getting the no responses definitely sucks! As much as I was concerned about our numbers I did not like the feeling of getting a no response in the mail! I know that he will have a lot more people on his side as well and he has more friends than I do so that makes me sad, but in the end it doesnt matter because everyone is there for US! Im sorry you feel upset but I promise that once more Yes responses start coming in you will feel better!
